As of the timing,I'll probs leave it and I'll probs bend the valves :anim_peep:I don't think they're retiming by moving the cams a complete tooth... advancing the cam timing is something they have been doing on the old RF4 450 motor. the cam sprockets are bolted to the cams, you can change the timing by undoing the bolts and moving the cam gears over ever so slightly but it requires the knowledge on how far you can go to have the desired positive effect and rather than making the valves contact the piston... the cam gears on the 350 are also bolted to the cams so they can be tuned the same way.
btw you sure the tank is sitting flush and it's not caught up on wires, the clutch/throttle cables or the frame/ tank supports? the allignement on the sxf and exc's should be identical so if something doesn't match up maybe the tank is not sitting down as far as it should.
Ok onto the wheels installation
Front wheel installed, With 320mm Relocator and black fork gaurds
Rear Wheel Installed,Chain(non o-ring) And Husaberg FS 570 smaller kick stand installed
I've gone for a 13t, 44t set up, Shall be interesting to see how the motor goes
Kick Stand Comparison
Original kick stand top
Husaberg Stand Bottom
Hi, the stand I purchased is off the husaberg fs570, if you want to buy the stand you need to go to a husaberg deal and give them this part number 81203023044. Otherwise the stand is roughly 370mm long, end to end.Hi
Could you tell me where you found this small kick stand ? Could you give me the lenght i think
I Will cut my 500 exc of i cant find a smaller
After spending a lot of time considering all my options it looks like the 350exc is exactly what I want.Hi, the stand I purchased is off the husaberg fs570, if you want to buy the stand you need to go to a husaberg deal and give them this part number 81203023044.

The only question I have is how many miles do you get between engine rebuilds. I know what they recommend in the service schedule but that is often on the conservative side.
Can anyone comment about engine durability?
That sounds good to me.this little video 'ere should give you an idea of what an exc350 is capable of handling:
if it can survive 50 hours at that pace, in those conditions with such little wear I can see it doing a whole lot more on a bike that's used on the street.
keep the air filter clean and properly installed, as well as changing the oil and filter on time and I could easily see a top end last 150 - 200 hours or even more on a bike that's supermoto'd. enduro bikes tend to see more punishment because they deal with a lot more dirt that can potentially make it's way into the engine, which in turn can cause more wear on the piston, rings and valves. a supermoto that's used on the street doesn't have that problem, unless you completely neglect air filter maintenance.
Talk about reviving an old thread ... Hey Clifford, did you get that speedo sorted?YOUR BIKE LOOKS AWESOME. I just got a 2014 ktm 350 excf. doing some supermoto changes o it.Did you have any trouble adjusting your speedo when you changed tires? mine is just showing 0, then turning off.
